The Federal Government turns a dear
car to all their appeals, uttered either
by voice, or through platform or press.
I W pie ?thai: Virginia as a sovereign
State will Bp ak her voice for the
people, nnd that the example, will bo
followed by all the Common wealths in
this Union, demanding that some better
financial system shall bo adapted than
that which at present prevails. It is n
burnlmr shame that! the statement is
almost daily and hourly made that
I'm re is plenty of money in a few fa?
vored cer.tres, while it is an admitted j
fact that 'through the broad land, and
among the people, .there Is not enough
to meet the tax burdens laid upon
tltem. Retrenchment and economy is
a necessary principle, but how it is to
1k> practiced on a pace with an ever
decreasing value of taxable properly
under our present financial system I
cannot tell. Therefore, I earnestly
hops tha't Virginia's voice will be spoken
by the Legislature in no uncertain
sound, asking fiv>m the Federal Gov?
ernment attention lo'the real needs of
the people In demanding a bettor and
more satisfactory banking system, and
a more healthful money circulation.
Our revenues ore now barely silffi
clent to meet demands. Si; n we will
have :o provide for an Increased rate
of interest on our public deb;, which
we are sacredly pledged to meet. There
are but three Illings a's far as I can
see that can be done. We must either
lind new subjects of .taxation, increase
the present rale, or cut d'.r#n <:,>enses.
The latter course is itho only line on
which hope of relief can be based as
far as we can view the subject. And!
this will i>e a difficult task, requiring
almost Spartan courage. P.ut ,vu must
remember that 'there is a ?lern neces?
sity for rigid economy, and that the
surgeon's knife is a noble Instrument In
kind but firm hands. It Is a p.or cap?
tain and crew who will not take a reef
In ithelr sails In the face of an ap?
I do not understand that the com?
plaint or the people is so much at the
amount of salaries paid, us against the
number of officers the present unsult
cd Constitution allows to bo Imposed
upon them. We have become an office
ridden people. In many Instances the
amount of salary Is only sufficient to
invite a scramble for the position, while
the pay Is nvit enough to furnish Oven
a scanty support. The ofllelnl has
?to find some other menus to supplement
his Income, and his other occupations
usually receive about all his time, the
1 State and counties getting but little
return for the money paid out. These
evils should be remedied by the con?
solidation of otllces, and where con?
stitutional difficulties arc in the wayi
the places should only bo tilled tern-j
porarily, and 'the most speedy course
possible taken to remove these diffi?
culties. To this end I hope the Legis?
lature will appoint a joint commit?
tee of Its own members, or a commis?
sion outside if deemed more desirable,
<to -take into consideration the whole
question of constitutional changes, and
get a report before tho close of the
present session, if possible. This, it
seems to me. would be the speediest
and surest way to settle tho question
of securing a suitable constitution.
I hope the Legislature will press the
measures, which I believe 'are now be?
ing considered to secure fuller returns
of pert'-nal property for taxation. The
total real estate values of the State are
S:;04.201,500. while the value of all per?
sonal property is only shown to be
$94,310 048. There ought hot to be so
great a discrepancy. The personal prop?
erty values ought :o be something llko
equal to the value of the real estate.
This comes from failure tut the .part
cf maijy holding obligations of debt
and ether securities to make proper re?
turns. Frequently it is developed that
parties bequeaths much larger sums
than they had listed during life for
itaxation. Such bequests Wlion the fact
can be ascertained should have a tax
j placed upon said excess equal to lite
I collateral inheritance tax, or enough to
reimburse the State for at least >ton
years of the 4ax which it has lost. 1
think a very rigid law should :*e pass?
ed requiring evidences of debt of all
kind that Is subject to taxation to be
listed with the proper officers, and not
only should the courts be required not
to give judgment when the property
has not been property listed, but a
?heavy penalty and fine should be im?
posed whenever a statement to defraud
the Stale in this way -Is discovered.
Would it not bo well to require a list?
ing of nil stock in incorporated compa?
nies, ami to pass o. law Invalidating
the act of any corporation where U can
be shown that any of the stock or ne
curltles on said cbonpany that are prop?
er subjects of taxation have not been
listed? Would it not be well also, in
order to save annoyance to our people,
and that we may be able to put proper
res!raint upon corporate power, tin re?
quire, when it Is feasible, all corpora?
tions doing business in this State to
obtain charters from the State?
Lest there be 'those who think I have
'overdrawn the picture of our difficul?
ties, and tun Inclined iBo be pessimistic.
I I will say I am not without an abiding
faith In the future. It needs but a re?
trospective glance for all to recognize
?the wonderful recuperative powers of
our grand old State. Think of her con?
dition after tho last gun was fired ?t
A'ppomattox. Devastated In field and
forest?a half mitllon of slaves .bewil?
dered by. their'sudden freedom?all our
flocks and herds swept away, moneyless
and without banks, and millions of debt.
She was never grander than when she
bared luir bosom and bade her sons dig
deep for lite bidden treasures, the value
of which, though thirty years have
passed, .cannot bo estimated; for as
yet the s arch for them..Is but 1n...the
dawn. Her primeval forests, with ,lts
varied wood invites the axe of the
capitalist. Her wonderful -water power
iready for the spipdlos of tl\9, co.Llon
and other factories, is png^r fny ai'tiltxa
tlon, while eager hands- weary from
enforced idleness beckon anxiously for
Uic Holders of money to give them en?
dowment. Cannot wo devise means by
which ahey can meet in imitunl benefit?
All these things demand our earnest
A Hood of memories should warm our
hearts and strengthen our hanils in the
discharge of our duties. The memory
of those free and dauntless spirits who
came to our shores, and going into tho
shadowy forest, hewed out d home for
themselves beside bubbling springs
where ahe band of the unjust tax gath?
erer could not reach them; where the
s-.;ll was bountiful and the skies were
ready to drop riches upon -them. Is
hallowed by us all. Such n memory
dunes to me now. and I nsk myself If
we are guarding with zealous eye and
vestal care 'the fires of liberty so brave?
ly bequeathed to us? Oh, for a re?
kindling of patriotic interest among
the people. When that is aroused noth?
ing more is needed to settle every qiies
| trip promptly and justly.
And it Is coming. Seasons of patient
suffering do not always last, periods
of torpid acquiescence have their re?
actions. But let public opinion once
be tboiMughly aroused and then?
'.'Its step is as the tread
Of a flood that leaves its bed."
Hut X have detained you too long. T|
think I am a grateful man. The peo?
ple have been good and kind and bos-;
pliable to nie beyond my deserts. My
heart ?' ics out to each man, woman
and child in the Commonwealth of
Virginia. I say God bless the-m all.
And my great desire Is that under tin:
blessings and guidance of a gracious
